Hartford, CT – Diversified Project Management (DPM), a Hartford, Connecticut owner’s representative firm, recently announced it has completed its engagement for providing comprehensive relocation management services for the Harvard H. Ellis Technical High School in Danielson, Conn. DPM managed the procurement of the school’s new furniture, fixtures, and equipment, and provided exclusive relocation management services to the district, through a consultancy agreement with the project’s architect, The S/L/A/M Collaborative.
Harvard Ellis, the first technical school in Connecticut to have its own building, recently underwent a 4-phased, 30,000sf construction and renovation project, which included new classrooms, media center, gymnasium, and culinary arts center. DPM was retained to provide full move management services including the procurement, receipt, and installation of the FF&E.
Directed by DPM project executive Robert Reihl, senior project planners Janet Wheeler and Rick Davidow regularly worked with a series of state of Connecticut agencies, vendors, consultants, and school faculty, to order, schedule, and oversee the installation of shop equipment and classroom furnishings and facilitating the delivery of all equipment for the newly renovated space, which was completed in time for the fall 2014 semester.
“Janet and Rick have saved me significant time,” said Brian K. Mignault, Sr., Ph.D., principal of Harvard Ellis. “They communicated with us on each and every step of the process. I cannot begin to tell you how much I value their efforts.”
DPM has completed similar projects for Capitol Region Education Council (CREC), New Haven Public Schools, and Gateway Community College.
